Class 2 Residential Trip

    Class 2 had an amazing time on our residential trip to Derbyshire.
     
    They were so pleasant to spend time with, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment - even the muddy fields! 
     
    On Monday, we left school and headed straight to the National Stone Centre. Although drizzling with rain, this didn't dampen our spirits! Children enjoyed gem panning and comparing their haul of gems, fossil casting, exploring different forms of rocks, exploring the museum and the fossil remnants in the surrounding area. We then made our way to the Youth Hostel, had dinner and explored the hostel and games room. A beetle drive was enjoyed as children drank their hot chocolate before bedtime. 
     
    Up early on Tuesday morning for an English breakfast before putting on our walking boots for a long walk to Dovedale, via muddy fields. A well deserved ice-cream was enjoyed on the way back to the hostel, before taking part in afternoon activities including exploring Ilam Church, sketching some of the geographical features of the area and sheep herding (a game without sheep!) . After a hearty dinner, children teamed up to complete a quiz, even beating the teachers' team! 
     
    Finally on Wednesday morning, after packing up and loading the coach, we headed to Sudbury Hall Museum of Children, where the Victorian schoolroom was awaiting our arrival. Children were able to experience the differences in schooling, and particularly enjoyed their teachers being told off! The children were observant in their comparisons of different childhood toys, bedrooms and work conditions.
     
    It was finally time to head home, a great trip!
    Thank you children! We look forward to next year!

    Welcome

    Mrs-S-Ilett-Coupe-Head-TeacherWelcome to Kneesall Church of England Primary School! We are a small, rural Church school where every pupil knows how valued they are and all are encouraged to reach their full potential. We provide a secure, yet stimulating learning environment that enables pupils to be inspired and enthused. Our staff lead by example and our Christian ethos is evident in everything we do. We encourage our pupils to care for each other, for their community and for the world in which they live. Their spiritual, moral, cultural and social development is as important to us as their academic attainment.

    Kneesall School has served our village for more than 150 years and is an important part of our local community, as well as the wider community. We take an active part in village life through our strong links with our church and the local villages.

    Our beautiful school grounds provide plenty of opportunities for environmental studies, structured playtimes, development of expressive arts and areas for reflection. The outdoor equipment and playing field are a real asset to school and pupils are encouraged to develop their physical abilities.

    We provide a rich and meaningful curriculum which sets out to educate the ‘whole’ child and creates opportunities for each and every one to experience success.

    We know how important it is to have strong links between home and school in order for good learning partnerships to be forged and we greatly value these partnerships.

    We would love you to come and visit us so that you can find out more about our school, our values and the special place that is Kneesall C of E Primary School.
